Watch: This ultimate Damian McKenzie schoolboy highlight reel shows that he ticked every box as a 10 prospect
Blazing speed, great footwork, clinical passing, no fear running, a 60-metre leg, ability to kick off both feet, and hyper-aggressive defence.
Damian McKenzie had it all as a schoolboy rugby player, all of which made him a 5-star flyhalf prospect for Christ’s College in Christchurch.
Watch this incredible 9-minute highlight reel to find out what made McKenzie such a highly regarded prospect, which he has delivered on as a professional player by becoming an All Black.
The 19-year-old committed to a long-term deal with Chiefs in 2014, quickly becoming one of the cornerstone players of the franchise.
”While I was training with the Chiefs I learned so much and really enjoyed the coaching staff and the culture, so I am rapt to be given this opportunity,” McKenzie said at the time.
”The boys are very welcoming and I know I will enjoy being part of the Chiefs family.”
The Chiefs will be chuffed that the decision to go after the young 10 early has paid dividends, with McKenzie representing the club 78 times. At just 25-years-old, McKenzie is sure to be apart of the Chiefs for years to come.
